The Atmospheric Sciences minor provides students with an introduction to the impacts of the atmosphere upon society. This minor provides a way to diversify a student's background and apply fundamental scientific principles in an interdisciplinary way. It is especially beneficial to students who choose to pursue careers in areas in which a multidisciplinary background is essential, such as environmental sciences, engineering, and aviation. The curriculum provides students with opportunities to obtain a basic understanding of their physical environment, to understand and use technological and scientific tools, and to develop educated opinions concerning their environment.
